Top 10 Internet Hoax of 2016 Everyone Fell For! Part 1

2016 has been a great year so far with lots of ups & downs and lots of things happening around the World. This year we witnessed so many viral posts, News, tweets that we almost believed, but it turned out to be Fake. Here is Part 1 of Top 10 Internet HOAX. Enjoy

1. Killer insect causes lots of tiny holes

This post went viral in January 2016. Many people believed it and panicked. But the truth is this is just a photoshopped image of Honey Comb on Hands and an Insect. In fact the entire rumor seems to be another prank aimed at people who suffer from the scientifically unofficial “pathological fear of holes” known as trypophobia.

2. Kiwi Banana Fruit Hybrid.

 On March 2016 a video surfaced on social media claiming you can create Kiwi Banana Fruit Hybrid by placing end of the fruits together. However the original video was uploaded on YouTube on 1st April 2014 as an April Fools Prank. The Social media post cleverly edited out the part of original video where the host wishes his viewers Happy April Fool’s day.

Here is the Video

3. Drinking Pepsi with POLO/MENTOS causes instant DEATH!

May 2016, another viral post surfaced on Facebook claiming that drinking PEPSI after eating POLO/MENTOS leads to instant DEATH as the mixture creates CYANIDE poison. Whereas, the fact is it can produce significant reaction but not Cyanide poison. Almost everyone fell for this HOAX.

4. "Posts Can Become Public Tomorrow" Facebook Hoax

 On June 2016 this post became viral and everyone started to copy paste this post on their wall to "Prevent Facebook from making public their personal info, photos and videos". However this turned out to be fake as the Law code mentioned in the post has nothing to do with privacy and social networking. It's Commercial Law BTW.

5. Loch Ness Monster Skeleton Found.

 On 29 June 2016, the Facebook page Help2Rehome published two photographs purportedly showing the skeletal remains of the Loch Ness Monster. These images sparked a debate about both the existence of the Loch Ness Monster whether the remains of one such mythical creature had washed up on the shores of Scotland. But it turned out to be Hoax. The picture was taken on the sets of a TV documentary on Loch Ness Monster.
